Stability wise there is rarely an issue. However, shiphandling into the locks is very difficult. Not so much with a vessel of the Tatjana's size as there is a reasonable amount of "wiggle" room for both the ice and ship in the lock and approaches. On a vessel getting close to full beam it can be a very long and stressful day.
